What do online camera models and cryptocurrencies have in common? They are both sidelined and marginalized when it comes to lounging in the spotlight and getting the recognition they deserve for their work.
Well now it looks like crypto could be a real savior for models in the adult industry as other digital outlets continue to ignore or ban adult services, creators and models. online are turning to the decentralized world to regain their autonomy and freedom.
According to a report by Rolling Stone, given that major payment and credit card platforms either operate adult camera models or just don’t want to do business with them, it turns out that cryptocurrencies don’t discriminate and c is great news!
The article chronicles the stories of a few camera models that explain the inherent biases and exploitation of the adult online industry and how they decided to go with crypto services instead. According to a model named Gabi, if you failed to get clients, your rating on platforms would drop and that, according to her, “puts you in a position where you literally have to work for free for days and days and days.” Every hour you spend online without receiving a tip, you can just hear the ranking number drop off the back of your head. This is extremely anxiety-provoking, because the further down the leaderboard you go, the less likely you are to earn money to improve your rankings.
She further added,
“They advertised me as a ‘sexy local bachelor in your area ready to fuck for free’, nothing in my services is free.”
According to Gabi, just when she had lost all hope, she came up with the idea for a blockchain-based platform currently under testing called “Spankchain” where clients could transact in crypto. She writes in the article: “I started to seriously dig into cryptocurrency and how it might help solve all of the payment processor issues we’ve encountered as sex workers.”
According to their official website, Spankchain aims to eliminate middlemen and give power back to workers and models, “Anyone, regardless of profession, can use a public blockchain to store their funds and conduct transactions without fear of closure. of his accounts. . Blockchain transactions also have strong guarantees of finality, so fraudulent chargebacks used as a rationale for classifying adult entertainment businesses as “high risk” are effectively impossible.
We absolutely love the initiative behind this platform because that’s the beauty of blockchain technology; stop exploiting hard-working people, regardless of color, gender or choice of profession.
